The legend of Caymus Special Selection is passed down from one generation of wine lover to the next – Year after year, it scores so high it’s almost a joke! 97-99pts is not only in play each year, it’s happened nine times already!! Tasters expect 2014 to stand as the best Special Selection ever, when all is said and done. 

About the wine

Caymus Special Selection is the culmination of the Wagner family’s Herculean efforts in pursuit of the most sensual, fulfilling and delicious Cabernet on Earth.  Back in the early days, Randy Dunn helped the Wagners make the most of their excellent Cabernet, planted to clones brought from the Fay Vineyard (made famous by Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars).  Dunn, who later went on to become a legend in his own right, correctly recognized that there were certain plots under Caymus control that were so good, they deserved to be a wine all on their own.  Thus was Special Selection born and the Wagner family’s eight-generation march towards perfection may have reached its destination.  Tasting the resplendent fruit, creamy vanilla oak and utterly silky texture of the 2014 is an experience that Cab lovers won’t soon forget.  It’s borderline tragic that a wine of this superior quality from a vintage of such generous concentration should be so hard to come by.

About the winery

“Not many wineries, anywhere in the world, can match the Wagner family's consistent record of success” – Robert Parker

The Wagner family is up there with the Mondavis for the title of America’s winemaking dynasty. Each family member makes stellar wines from a variety of Californian appellations and patriarch Chuck Wagner steers the august Caymus Vineyard with an unapologetically Californian verve.  Chuck could rest on his laurels with the reputation of Caymus Special Selection Cabernet, but if you ask him, there’s so much more to do.  That’s why each year, they prospect for newer and better sources to augment the rock-solid core of elite fruit that has made them synonymous with excellence.

"Beyond fabulous! This is how a Cabernet should taste."

"Never disappoints! Simply delicious!"

"Incredible Cab. Sting fruit character followed by intensifying tannins ending in a long, lingering finish"

95 pts, Wine Spectator #44 Top 100 2016

"This zeroes in on a rich, hedonistic core of wild berry, blackberry, plum and currant flavors, with a graceful, elegant mouthfeel and supple, caressing tannins. The long and powerful yet refined aftertaste keeps reverberating fruit generosity while maintaining Cabernet's strength of personality. Drink now through 2030."

Thank you for trusting Vivino for your wine orders! In order to ensure that your wine is protected from the elements during transport, Vivino has developed a comprehensive program for temperature controlled shipping:

  • All shipments to Non-West Coast states (CA, OR, WA, ID, MT, WY, NV, AZ, CO, NM) will be sent via temperature controlled truck to the closest regional hub. These facilities, referred to as "gateways", are temperature controlled and located strategically throughout the country.
  • Once a shipment arrives at the gateway*, it will be transferred to UPS or Fedex for the final part of its journey

* Note that ice packs (if ordered) will be added to your package at this time.


All orders placed before 1pm EST on Wednesday will be shipped out on Friday of the same week. All orders placed after this time will be stored in a temperature controlled warehouse and shipped out the following Friday.

Delivery times, therefore, may take 8-14 days from order date, accounting for fulfillment, 4-5 days shipment to the regional hub, and 1-2 days for local delivery.

If you would like a more expeditious delivery option, please select 2-Day or Overnight Shipping.


Tracking information will not be available for your shipment until it reaches the regional hub, due to the fact that the shipment is sent via common (temperature controlled) carrier and there is no individual tracking number for the package.

You will however receive a confirmation email indicating that your shipment has left the West Coast warehouse and is en route to your closest regional hub. Your order will say "UPS Label Created", but this label will not be scanned until it reaches the regional hub.

Once the shipment reaches the regional hub, you will be able to track your package (likely 4-5 days after shipping date). At this point, the package is en route to your home/office.
